What you see is what you get Do visuals have a bigger and a better impact and effect on readers than text does? Which one of the two creates a stronger bond or association to a place in the readers mind. And which one is stronger and hits the readers emotions heavier. In Opening Portfolio by Joel Sternfeld the author has four photographs with text on the side explaining each one. Each photograph had its unique story and a sad event explained in the text.
Kelly would be less likely to choose to stay at the Premier Inn if I texted her rather than sent her an email. This is because sms is not an business conversation option. Sending a sms message would be disrespective against Kelly McClean. This method of communication was appropriate in the situation because Kelly McClean could be client of our hotel. It was important to use this type of written communication because now Kelly McClean will know that we are looking forward to see them in our hotel.
As a company marketing a mobile phone application, there are always other factors to consider. In order to use many internet-based applications, the user must give a certain amount of personal information to the publisher. One ethical issue that would need to be addressed with the nature of this type of business is how that personal information and data is handled. Our company would have to adopt a very strict confidentiality policy in order to protect the privacy of our customer base. Re-building the trust of our customers is not worth the potential gains of sharing their personal information and there would have to be negative repercussions for anyone who attempted that type of unethical behavior.
The practical advantages of these are that the data collected is not influenced by the researcher and therefore, bias is reduced. Quantitative studies can cover a huge number of people, making them reliable and representative. This is impractical in qualitative research as a great amount of time is needed in order to get data. Statistics are cheap and quick to use, as they are often published and readily available. Durkheim could access the data of many European countries in his Suicide study at little cost.
Tony Avila Midterm Photo Documentary: The Migrant Mother In this essay I will address question number three. Documentary photography denotes photography in which pictures are used to document historical events. Through this type of photography, images are deeply intertwined with world/Society events and are often used to easily incite political and social change due to its ability to capture the “truth”. Through photography we are in touch with reality, our consciousness is raised in a good way ( Beloff) The photograph “The Migrant Mother” does precisely this, it provoked outrage in many Americans at the time of the great depression and it influenced the federal government into action, to this day the image is regarded as one of the most powerful and famous great depression images captured. In March 1936 Dorothea Lange having just completed a month-long assignment for the Resettlement Administration, and while driving home through San Luis Obispo County stopped by a migrant workers campsite.
Duffy’s poem is about how we deal with the suffering of others, who might be far away. It takes the character of war photographer to present someone more involved and committed than we are. I think war photography keeps us up to date and aware and gets us to know what’s going on in the world with the horrific reality of war. Duffy creates some powerful and disturbing images, images we would rather not think about, or really see. Some of them in particular stand out: “The only light is red and softly glows.” The message here is the connotation of the colour red for blood and its also linked to the Catholic Church, the photo confess the truth of war.
The pain associated with body image is not a one step process, starting with mental pain then progressing to emotional pain then on to physical pain. Some may say the root of the problem comes from within but what instills the “perfect” image inside the mind of the person? Factors such as media and family can influence the initial thought. The media, especially magazines, publish pictures of celebrities that have been edited to the point that they look flawless. It is very rare that a magazine publishes a picture of someone who is unedited and natural.
The rest of this story is about how people in the sorghum winery are impacted and tore apart by the invasion of Japanese. When the World War II begins, Japanese starts taking control parts of China and reconstructs the main land. In their area, while forcing villagers to flatten the sorghum, the Japanese leader decides to hang and kill some person as examples. From the witness crowd, Nine realizes one of them is Louhan, her old benefactor. In a pent fury, workers in the winery decide to trap the Japanese’s tank to revenge for Louhan.
The narrator first uses a metaphor comparing his cloudy vision on the battlefield to “misty panes” and then uses the simile “as under a green sea [I saw him drowning]” to describe his friend’s death. The simile implies that the doomed soldier was enveloped in a figurative “sea” of poisonous fumes, which “drowned” his lungs – similar to drowning in a sea of water. The heavy use of water imagery is interesting to note, because water is vital to life. Thus, an image generally linked to the preservation of life is here used as a destructive force – a “green sea” in which someone “drowns” (and ostensibly dies a terrible death). Owen also mentions the color green in both lines.
This coverage was thought to have had a powerful influence on public opinion and therefore on political decision making”. This evidence also explains how the media influenced many Americans by making them realize that the war was bad and it had to end. The last two evidences fit together with each other because they both show how the media has changed the way people saw the war and it also shows the importance of the media during the Vietnam War. “
